Right.  Because they couldn't just use another brand of phone or a custom app that uses different encryption if Apple allowed this.
 Right, and I believe that was a big part of Apple's early marketing strategy: get their computers into schools so that it would become many people's first experience with a computer.  Assuming that would build fond memories (again an emotional connection of some sort) or that people wouldn't bother to compare with other types of computers.
 As someone who works in technology, it'd be my dream to have everyone choose products based solely on the quality of the product.  Unfortunately the real world doesn't work that way.  People tend to want to be glad-handed (e.g. salesmen who push products from companies that give them kickbacks) or emotionally convinced in some way (e.g. a celebrity they feel a connection with endorses it, they have a personal relationship with a salesman, a friend recommended it, etc)....
 Did someone hack your account Apple ][? I've always seen you as someone who wants Apple stock to go up no matter what it takes, and who's willing to argue in favour of things like manufacturing in countries with questionable labour laws and environmental regulations if it leads to lower manufacturing costs/increased profits (and yes, I realize that everyone in the industry does this).  But now you're taking a stand on Apple using celebrities to promote a product when it...

 You seriously couldn't hear the similarities between Got To Give It Up and Blurred Lines?  That one was a no brainer for me, but this one is a stretch for sure.
Britto's work can be found here.  Kind of a combination of Lichtenstein, Picasso, and Warhol.  Don't think he has a case unless there's a piece of his which has direct similarities that I'm not seeing.
